Expresso Cupcakes, Caramel Ganache, and Irish Cream Frosting!

Today is my good friend, Josh’s birthday.  He had taken some really great pictures of my creations for the blog.  To celebrate his birthday I made him some cupcakes!

Expresso Cupcakes

The cake recipe came from: Confessions of A Faux Gourmet

  • I used at chocolate fudge cake mix
  • I used 3/4 cup espresso and then a little under 1/4 cup water

The filling recipe came from: The Secrets of Baking: Simple Techniques for Sophisticated Desserts on Pg. 23

The frosting recipe came from: Brown Eyed Baker

  • I have made her Irish Car Bomb cupcakes before, and knew the frosting was exactly what I wanted for these cupcakes.
